Chickens

 

Now we have extended our veggie plots and intend to use a 4 course rotation which will include chickens we thought we should extend our chicken flock. So we have built a new chicken run mainly from recycled pallets. It is almost complete.

We are now looking for some chickens – we would like to have a specific breed such as Light Sussex or Rhode Island Red.

New Chickens arrive.

Having struggled to find some Light Sussex hens finally got some today and ended up taking their mates too from a very nice man, Tom in Hull.

It would have been cruel to split the gang up!

Rory the Rhode Island Red and Cliffe the Light Sussex first met Tinker and Dot and where not phased by these ‘small’ dogs at all!

Then they where introduced to the girls who they will shortly be moving in with.

Here you are boys here's your new girls!

Before being put in their temporary run to settle in.
